The handle on this is 1.5 inches shorter, and without some kind of shield it scares me. There are many times the guard gets in the way, or you can't see what you are doing. So I had to figure out a way to protect my hands, but still be able to see what I am doing. So I modified the guard, and will never use it without the modified guard. The modification allows me to see what I am cutting, but still protect my hands.
I think this is a dangerous tool, they really need to redesign this tool, and make the handle at least 1.5 inches longer.
I thought this would replace my older plug in grinder, but that will still be my go to grinder. This new grinder will still have it's place, but only for small quick jobs.
The good: Better than expected power. it has enough power to remove metal pretty quickly although not quite as fast as my 4 inch dewalts with a cord but, thats to be expected. The brake feature works well and stops the wheel in a couple seconds or less. The tool is comfortable in the hand and vibrates very little. It also has a look and feel of being well made which i have come to expect from Milwaukee tools.
The bad: it eats batteries even faster than expected. It will drain a 5 amp hour battery in maybe 10 minutes of near continuous use. I dont consider this to be milwaukee's fault, rather just the nature of this type of too but i do think it is important to know before you buy. Also the brake makes a weird noise that sounds like a problem with the gears. I have decided that there is no problem and its just the way it sounds so, not really a bad thing if im correct.
Overall, its a good tool and could come in handy for small jobs away form power of if you just dont feel like dragging out a cord. However, dont buy it thinking your going to do a lot of grinding at a time unless you have a lot of batteries.
On a positive note, a review for the REGULAR (non-Fuel) M18 grinder said that the user could grind 3 blades on a lawnmover on a single 5.0 battery pack. I have no idea what that person has to grind, etc., but for my case, I had 1 out of 4 lights on a 5.0 battery left and I wanted to see what it could do. I was very pleasantly surprised that when I needed to do my touchup with the blades still installed on the mower deck, I touched up all three and still had battery. This beast is solid.
So to wrap it up, if you asked me if I would recommend it, I would say it depends. What battery/batteries do you have. If you have the XP's like I do, then no. You're better off getting the tool with an updated battery, possibly. If you have a new CP 6.0 or bigger then I would say go for it.
Until I used this one.
